Principal's Message

Hello Hueneme Elementary Families,

November is here and we will be into December before we know it! A big THANK YOU to all of our families that have come out to support our various family nights that have taken place from late September through early November.

No SHINE after school program: On Friday, November 17, 2023 there will not be SHINE after school care. Our SHINE staff will be participating in staff development that day.

Report cards & Parent Conferences: Parent conferences are just around the corner. Your child's teacher may have already reached out regarding scheduling a conference. Our parent conferences will be held after school hours from Monday, November 27th through Friday, December 8th. Hueneme schools will be on early dismissal during these two weeks. TK&K dismiss at 12:00 pm, Grades 1-3 dismiss at 1:20 pm, and Grades 4&5 dismiss at 1:40 pm. We thank you in advance for making pick up arrangements and scheduling a conference.

Thanksgiving Break: Hueneme Elementary will be on Thanksgiving Break from November 20-24, 2023. School resumes on Monday, November 27th with Parent Conferences. We wish you a restful and Happy Thanksgiving.

Military Donations & Canned Food Drive: Hueneme is hosting a Canned food drive and Military Donation drive.


Mid-Lunch Delivery: Please do your best to send lunches, water bottles, etc. with students in the morning vs. dropping off in the office just before lunchtime. At times, students are not getting their lunches/items on time or get a cafeteria lunch before they make it to the office. To ensure that this does not happen, we are asking for your help with this matter. Thank you in advance for your support.

Breakfast & Lunch: For the 2023-2024 school year, our cafeteria will be serving breakfast and lunch at no cost to our families. This is part of an ongoing California grant for the district under the universal feeding program. Families can find the menu by going to the school website, clicking the menu button on the right hand side, the click the circle button labeled "dining".

Safety First: Safety is important in and around our school! Many cars stop in the middle of the streets to let their children out of the car or for students to get into cars. There is limited parking at Hueneme and drop off and pick up gets busy! Please do your very best to find a parking spot. This puts our students and families in danger when they run out into the street. In addition, this also holds up the traffic that are also trying to pick up. If we all do our part, I know we can get to and from school safely! Thank you in advance for your help!

Entering School: For the 2023-2024 school year, we will have BOTH GATES OPEN as in past years. If your child is having breakfast, please have them enter at the back cafeteria gate from 7:35-7:55. Upper grade students can enter that gate as well. Primary students are welcome to enter on the Clara St. gate. The Clara St. gate opens at 7: 35. Both gates close promptly at 8:00. Late arrivals should report to the office for a tardy slip.

There is NO supervision prior the gate opening. Please do not drop students off earlier than 7:35. Thank you!
